Although this is still in simulation stages, you can still program it. Isn't physics just amazing?
Microsoft has a programming language for quantum available for download
I've already been there and ran a Hadamard gate, and it collapsed and gave the wrong answer 25% of the time. Quantum error correction is apparently theoretically "all sorted out" but no-one has a machine with enough stable quibits to run it I don't think. I've seen a couple of estimations of 2.5 million quibits to run the Shaw algorithm (encryption breaker) with error correction, we have less than 100 quibits at the moment.
